warm start, hot afternoon coming our way. 84 to 87 degrees by noontime today. most of the area's going to be dry, but can't rule out, again, that little isolated shower coming through, maybe even a pop-up thunderstorm. so, for your afternoon, we get up to 92, 93 degrees, but it will feel like 95 to 96 degrees today. hot one today, hot one tomorrow. i'll have your four-day forecast coming up in a couple of minutes. right now, traffic with danella. thanks, veronica. traveling around the beltway, this "first 4 traffic" report looks good because overnight road work looks to be gone. let's travel i-66 together if you're making the commute, really from the bypass as you make your way towards the beltway, nice and clear. inside the beltway, 66 not seeing any problems for you. a live look at spout run parkway in both directions. again, not seeing anything slowing you down. 11 minutes to get from the beltway to gw parkway as you travel eastbound. you're at about 60 miles per hour right now. and if you're taking the rails, i'm checking them. so far, they're open, but no reported delays along the metro, the marc or the vre.
